Hi, welcome to NellyNora! I thought I’d tell you a little about how NellyNora came to be. Life has been a whirlwind lately and amongst the flurry I have been reigniting my love of all things vintage, rustic, handmade and just that little bit different. To sum up the last 12 months, here goes…
- I got engaged to the gorgeous Adie, after 8 amazing years he popped the question in my favourite place on earth – the place where we first met, on the hill, St. Martins College, Lancaster. The DIY wedding began!
- We both moved into new jobs, I am in my fifth year of teaching at primary age and Adie landed a job at Manchester United – a dream come true!
- My gran passed away and this I feel, is where NellyNora’s story really begins. In short my Gran was my inspiration, she lived life to the fullest, put everyone else first and never wanted or needed much in life but was the most outgoing of all of us-even at 91. Even though I knew this all along, in the very few days that she was ill the message became clearer than ever. I needed to stop admiring Gran for these traits and start living by them myself and so it began – rather than daydreaming about ideas it was time to get on with them, so here I am 🙂
I have always loved interiors, design, crafts, textiles and all things vintage, through NellyNora I am going to share my love of these and be inspired along the way. Join me on my path of inspiration and let’s see where it takes us.
Just so you know Nelly is the name of Adie’s much missed Grandad and our crazy little Labradoddle 🙂 she suits us down to the ground and her bubbly, adorable and crazy ways entertain us endlessly and the Nora… Well I’m going to keep that to myself for now!
